This is the full 10-19-08 episode of the Labor Express Radio program. On this episode we take a look at the real ACORN (Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now). The mainstream media has portrayed the organization as if it was created to carry out vote fraud on behalf of Democratic candidates. In reality, ACORN is the most successful community organizing network in U.S. history and has worked to empower poor and working class communities around the country. Millions of low income Americans have a better quality of life because of the work of ACORN.
The episode also includes an update on the ongoing strike by members of the IAM (International Association of Machinists) at Boeing.
